You may create new migration, using the migrate:make command on the Artisan CLI. Use a specific name to avoid clashing with existing models

php artisan make:migration add_type_to_users_table --table=users

You then need to use the Schema::table() method (as you're accessing an existing table, not creating a new one). And you can add a column like this:

public function up()
{
    Schema::table('users', function($table) {
        $table->enum('type', ['player', 'venue'])->after('email');
    });
}

and don't forget to add the rollback option:

public function down()
{
    Schema::table('users', function($table) {
        $table->dropColumn('type');
    });
}

Then you can run your migrations:

php artisan migrate
